On 6 September, I receive an email from the Internet Society about an 
"InterCommunity 2017 Event" in Mauritius.  The email included an 
afrinic.net email address to contact to confirm participation.  Is 
that the "PR part" you are referring to in the above?  I would 
consider it as logistics instead of PR.

>Is the InterCommunity 2017 event by AFRINIC or ISOC Mauritius? Could you

Based on the email which I received I'll say that it is an Internet 
Society event.

>provide some information about ISOC Mauritius that AFRINIC recognizes?

I doubt that the question has been raised given that it is an 
Internet Society matter.
